Snow update

Snow update

Postby Crager » Thu Feb 14, 2008 9:00 pm

The road has been plowed to the gate, made some room to turn around.
The course has about a foot of virgin powder snow.
A winter wonderland, very pristine, just woodpeckers, Redtail hawks and snowcapped Orange Baskets.

Craig

Maybe we should de-virginize the snow tomorrow. :D
I'll bring my shovel, you in?
I'm even thinking of bringing the backnine signs out and attaching to the poles since they are taking up space in my living room!

Wish I could. Work has me slaving this weekend. Hope everyone has their discs well marked. I could see everyone misplacing at least a couple each. Too bad someone hasn't thought of a homing beeper or something.

Going to do both Sat and Sun rounds. Come on out! The pads should be easy to clear we had them done on last Sunday.

Is the snow still really deep on the hills of the course?

It's not too bad on the southern slopes which consists of most of the back 9 and the top of the hill on the front 9. The northern slope holes like #2, #7, #8 and #9 are still deep.

The gorge by #7 and #8 is perennially the last area to melt.

I'll be trudging through this weekend though! :)

#3 is still deep also. (forgot that one)
And by the way, since Tony aced #5A we just had to move it to the B position. :twisted:

#15 A has also been moved to the B position.

ENJOY.

I'm sure it's better than Wed was, and it's not bad walking. The pack is solid enough that you can stay on top most of the time.

Snow is known to be that way but the pads are dry.

As of Sunday the 16th , holes 1 thru 4 and 7 thru 9 have 1' to 1-1/2' of snow still.
5 & 6 on top of the hill are almost clear of all snow.
The back nine is not as deep with roughly 6" in most areas.

It's not bad walking through the whole course as the trails have been packed down pretty good.
No problem finding discs unless they dive bomb in sideways.
The pads and benches are clean and dry.

The back nine tee pads are shoveled clean :lol:
Bitchn and I played the played the back and cleaned them off.
Tomorrow morning the front will be done.
Take advantage of dry pads before it snows again.
There is 8-9 inches of powder, not to hard to walk through.
